JERICHO (Ma’an) -- Palestinian police detained 40 alleged fugitives in the week between May 27 and June 3 as some 40,000 Palestinians travelled through the Allenby Bridge crossing between Jordan and the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian police.

Nearly 18,496 people left the West bank and 21,255 crossed into the occupied territory during this period, according to a police statement.

The 40 arrested were described by Palestinian police as “wanted for criminal charges,” and were detained while attempting to travel through the crossing in and out of the West Bank.

The police statement added that 21 patients crossed in ambulances following coordination activities between Palestinian and Israeli liaison offices.

Israeli authorities prohibited the passage of 35 Palestinians attempting to cross the border for alleged security reasons.
